Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez Dehesa La Granja 2005
Deep ruby. Highly perfumed bouquet of cherry, mulberry, smoky Indian spices and vanilla. Vibrant, precise and seamless, offering juicy red and dark berry and floral flavors. Finishes with slow-building tannins, very good clarity and punch and repeating floral and spice qualities.
The 2005 Dehesa la Granja, from a top-flight vintage, displays an inviting perfume of cedar, Asian spices, a hint of balsamic, licorice, and assorted black fruits. This is followed by a sweetly-fruited, well-proportioned wine with a friendly personality. It is approachable now but is likely to evolve for another 2-3 years. Drink this outstanding value from 2013 to 2020+.
